Pretzel Salad

This Raspberry Jell-O Salad is a family favorite. Why they call it a salad is beyond me. This side dish is more like a Jell-O/Cheesecake type treat that melts in your mouth. My Grandma Janice introduced this salad to our family and has become a favorite ever since. Enjoy!

Mix together ahead of time: 1- 6 oz. Raspberry Jell-O, 2 Cups boiling water, and 2 cups boiling water, and 2 cups cold water. Jell-O needs to be partially set before pouring over last layer.

Mix: 6 oz. crushed pretzels
3 Tablespoons Sugar
1/4 Pound Butter
Pat into 9x13 pan. Cook at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.
Mix: 1-8 oz. Cream Cheese
1 Cup Sugar

Beat together and fold in 1-12 oz. container cool whip. Layer on top of cooled pretzel mixture, let cool until firm. Layer on top of cream cheese mixture: 2 20- oz. cans of crushed pineapple. Let chill. Pour Jell-o over pineapple layer and let set over night if possible.

Jen love reading your blog. You and Matt are made for each other. Your trip w/the dune buggy, caves, etc. sounds fun. It was so great to see you on the 4th! Loved the camp pictures-the girls are so lucky to have you!
